Covid-19 Update:

To our valued customers:

It is our hope that all of you are tucked safely away in your homes as we continue to learn about social distancing.  To those of you who are essential workers and continue your jobs during this pandemic - thank you.

We at Phillip J. Pirages are fortunate that our premises and business model allow us to continue to work safely, though with significant modifications.  We are open, and here to help you with orders and inquires.  Please take some time to browse our inventory online.  If you prefer to turn pages, please send us an email or give us a call to request a catalogue.

Our latest catalogue no. 76 is completely digital and now available for download. Please visit our "Catalogues" page to access the fully illustrated PDF or browse online. 

Best wishes,

Phillip J. Pirages Fine Books & Manuscripts
